  4. Greece, 1822-1828 merchant flag

    A blue cross on white was far and away the most popular Greek flag during the War of Independence. But when the First National Assembly selected the national flag in 1822, they chose a white cross on blue. The older flag did live on in the canton of this civil ensign, but it was replaced by the striped sea flag in 1828.

    Okay, so I was just playing call of duty and as usual, I’ve been distracted by flags. Anyone know if these are based in reality, or are they entirely fictional? Might have to post this on r/vex if no-one knows!

    I’ll do you one better: here’s a picture of the actual flagpole

    What you’re looking at is the flag of the Greek Orthodox Church on the left and the pre-1970 flag of Greece on the right.

  15. Crete (1898-1913)

    Crete was an autonomous state under Ottoman suzerainty from 1898 until 1913. Its flag was based on the Greek flag of the time. The red field and white star represented the authority of the Ottoman sultan. 

    In recent years, the flag of the Cretan State has become a controversial symbol in Greece. The airline Sky Express adopted a logo based on the flag when it launched in 2005, but was forced to change it after some public outcry.
